Mayor Mike Seferian has chosen Michael Beazley, currently the administrator of Lucas County, as Oregon’s city administrator.

Seferian called a special council meeting for 5 p.m. Thursday to announce his choice. Council is expected to approve the appointment.

Candidates interested in the position submitted 60 resumes to the city by the Dec. 15 deadline, though Beazley did not submit one.

Seferian, an independent, said he had his eye on Beazley, a Democrat, since former city administrator Ken Filipiak left last November.

“Mike Beazley has never applied for a job since his career started. People have always come after him,” said Seferian, who met with Beazley, 55, twice at his home in the last several weeks to discuss the position.

“When I first had him here at my house, I could see a gleam in his eye, like excitement,” added Seferian. “He reminds me of a young, eager person fresh out of college, willing to take on anything with enthusiasm. He is very bright. He’s got not only experience, but connections throughout the county, to Columbus, and even to the White House. He’s a class act. He’s the real deal. He’s too good to be true.”

When Owens College softball players Lydia Eckel and Aerica Susor first chose to

volunteer community service alongside their teammates, they probably never thought they would be providing relief efforts for Haiti earthquake victims.

The two Genoa High graduates were two of 20 Owens’ student-athletes who volunteered on Martin Luther King Day.

Beginning at 9 a.m., the softball players began painting the waiting room, assembling survival backpacks for the homeless, and stocking and sorting food items at Food For Thought, which is located in New Harvest Christian Church on Seaman Road in Oregon. They planned to stay until 3 p.m.

Food for Thought was founded with the overall mission of assisting the needy through the organization’s stationary food pantry, mobile food pantry, and picnic program. Six days per week, Food For Thought is credited with providing community outreach services to thousands of individuals as part of its efforts to increase access to food for hungry people.

“Having people volunteer, and having all these girls here from the Owens softball team taking what’s a day off for them and spending it here is great,” said New Harvest Church Senior Pastor Mike Przylbylski.
